Amanda White

Year 2 Elephants Class Teacher

I have now been teaching at BSB Sanlitun for one year in Year 2 and I have enjoyed working alongside other enthusiastic educators. Prior to this, I spent three years as a class teacher within a large inner-city London Primary School.

I have worked with children who have a range of abilities and who originate from different backgrounds. Within my previous school, I undertook the role of Art and Design Technology leader. This role involved establishing an Art and DT curriculum for a school, participating in National competitions, planning extra-curricular trips and working towards the Primary Education ‘Artsmark’ award.

I began my teaching journey at Roehampton University, where I completed a three year Bachelor of Arts Degree in Primary Education. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to become a teacher and I was inspired by the teachers who taught me and made my learning exciting. At University, I was immediately overwhelmed by how rewarding it felt to see the progress of the children I was teaching.

When I am not teaching I love exploring Beijing, as well as other places in Asia on holiday. At home I enjoy painting, crafts and sewing - I have even made a few of my own clothes.

What the students say

"Miss White is really kind and sometimes really funny! Whenever I am stuck on something, she would explain it in a very simple way."

"The best subject with Miss White is Maths because she explains it in a fun way I will understand so it is not too hard."

"I like doing Science with Miss White because we do fun experiments and she always answers our questions."
